Jute Erosion Control Cloth Product Guide

Jute erosion control cloth is a strong, biodegradable geotextile.

Its practical uses include stabilizing slopes and controlling soil erosion from water and wind. It can also be used to control the growth of new grass by laying it on top of the seeds and soil.

This 100% jute product, otherwise known as JGT (Jute Geotextile), provides a simple, economical, and effective alternative to many other methods of erosion control.

Though primarily used for the practical purpose of erosion control and slope stabilization, erosion cloth can be used for alternative or decorative purposes. Some people use it for set pieces in theater or photography, or as rustic window treatments.

Since jute is a natural, biodegradable textile, it will eventually decompose more rapidly and is less harmful to the environment compared to other materials. Once placed in the ground, jute erosion cloth will decompose more rapidly.

The actual rate of decomposition depends on varying factors like temperature, moisture, and humidity, but this cloth will generally last about 3 to 6 months in the ground before bio-degradation.

Can this go on top of new sod or does it have to go underneath?
A shopper on Dec 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It can go on top of sod, but that wouldn’t make sense in most cases. Sod is erosion control. I used it for grass planted in poor soil that was eroding because of high clay content and heavy rain. The grass has grown through it and now it is invisible under the fragile turf. It will help hold the soil together while the turf develops and will decompose after the root network is established.
